'll break down some of the electoral possibilities, which is narrowing for mitt romney and david shuster is in denver as well. the debate will start in about 57 minutes. i'm already buzzing. i love these things. >> jennifer: let's go! let's go! >> cenk: and we'll have analysis afterwards as well. vice president gore let me start with you. it looks like mitt romney is significantly down in the important swing states. does your strategy shift now and if so how? >> i think he has to be aggressive, without seeming to be aggressive and i think it's a tricky act for him to pull off. i think that his supporters realize that he is probably behind as the polls indicate and that he needs to really change some minds tonight. i think in some way there's more pressure on president obama simply because the polls indicate and most people expect that he will win the debate and that's a tough position to be in. but at the same time because governor romney has to do so much more -- he has to change the course of this race tonight, and that puts an enormous amount of pressure on him. so
. and that meant i had to reach across the aisle -- >> what would you do as president. >> romney: i'll sit down with leaders and continue -- as we did in my state, we met every month for -- monday for a couple of hours. there's common ground and the challenges america faces right now -- the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting in this country, and this deficit could crush the future generations. there are developments around the world that are of real concern and republicans and democrats both love america, but we need to have leadership in washington that will bring people together and get the job done, and could not careless if it is a republican or a democrat. i have dope it before and i'll do it again. >> mr. president. >> obama: governor romney will have a very busy first day, because he is also going to repeal obamacare. but my philosophy has been i will take ideas from anyone as long as they are advancing the opportunities for middle class families. that's how we signed three trade deals into law that are helping us to double our e
-- >> about 9% down on the president. >> and up to 26% on governor romney. actually, larry kudlow with us as well. >> maria? >> yes, john? >> i want to say, i think you were right about the president being on the defensive. one of the things that came out of the two conventions is that the democrats, bill clinton helped president obama in this, shifted this from a referendum election on president obama's performance to a choice election. i think this -- the effect was to pull it back to a referendum election and put president obama on the defensive. he's the one with the record. and the american public is not in a great mood right now. >> he has to defend that record. that's what he tried to do tonight. governor romney was much more specific in term of his plans going forward. in terms of job creation, tax reform, even in terms of getting back to economic growth. larry kudlow with us as well. larry, what's your take? >> i thought that this was a tremendous victory for romney. this is a different, different romney than the one at the convention. he was specific and crisp and precise and en
to move -- >> romney: i have to respond. my experience as a governor if i lay down a piece of legislation and say my way or the highway, i don't get it done. when ronald reagan ran for office he laid out the principles that he was going to foster, lower tax rates, broaden the base. you have said the same thing. those are my principles i'm going to work together with congress to say okay what are the various ways we could bring down deductions for instance. one way would be to have a single number, maybe can have deductions up of that amount and then that number disappears for higher-income people. one could follow simpson boles. there are all kinds of ways to achieve the objective i have. and with regards to health care you had remarkable de25i8s with regards to my preexisting condition plan. i do have a plan that deals with people with preexisting conditions, that's part of my health care plan. and what we did in massachusetts was a model state by state. the federal government taking over health care for the entire nation is not the course for america to have a strong
, please respond directly to what the prrsident reject to what mr. romney just said about the trickle-down approach. >>+ amid talk specifically about what i think we need to do. first, we've got to improve our we have made enormous progress drawing ideas both from democrats and republicans that are already starting to show gains in some of the toughest to deal with students. we have a program called race to the top that has raised standards are around the country. i want to hire 100,000 new math and sciencc teachers and create 2 million more stott -- spots in our community colleges so that people can get trained for the jobs that are out there right now. and i want to make sure that we keep tuition low for our young people. when it comes to our tax code, governor romney and i both agree that our corporate tax rate is too high. i want to lower it, particularly for manufacturing. i also want to close those loopholes that are giving incentives for companies that are shipping jobs overseas. i want to provide tax breaks for companies that are investing here in the united states. on energy, gove
. romney: we're now spending 42% of our economy on government. i don't want to go down the path of spain. i want to go down the path of growth that puts americans to work with more money in because they're working. >> moderator: but, mr. president, you're saying in other words -- in order to get the job done, it's got to be balanced. obama: if we're serious, we've got to take a balanced, responsible approach. and by the way, this is not just individual taxes. let's talk about corporate taxes. now, i've identified areas where we can right away make a change that i believe would actually help the economy. the oil industry gets $4 billion a year in corporate welfare. basically, they get deductions that those small businesses that governor romney refers to, they don't get. now, does anybody think that exxonmobil needs some extra money when they're making money every time you go to the pump? why wouldn't we want to eliminate that? why wouldn't we eliminate tax breaks for corporate jets? my attitude is if you've got a corporate jet, you can probably afford to pay full freight and not get a specia
, barack obama, by talking about new economic patriotism, and mitt romney by talkin talking about trickle-down government. and they took off from there. it seemed that shaped a lot of where the conversation went. >> i would have liked to have seen more than themes, actually. i thought a lot of the themes got lost-- they crammed each answer with too many specifics, too many details, too many planks in the platform in each different answer. it was kind of lost. i'm not sure voters who are not paying attention to politics. we know the background to all these issues but i'm not quite sure what they'll get out of it if anything. >> woodruff: that's my question, are voters -- we followed some of this but it was pretty dense at times, wasn't it. >> it was. the president's theme was how the burdens and benefits of governmented ought to be distributed. he kept coming back to that. that we were sort of all in this together. and what surprised me, i guess, about mitt romney was he used the-- as a credential, the governorship of massachusetts more tonight than he has in the past 11 months. it's just remar
, was doubling down on policies, but ultimately, performance wise, this was a strong night for mitt romney. >> david muir, we saw the big smile on mitt romney immediately after the debate. some results already coming in, romney's odds going up. >> yeah, that smile spills relief on romney's face tonight. within the campaign, too, george. in fact, i got a text before the debate was over from a key adviser who said "mission accomplished." the governor looked to put the president on the defensive. they think that was accomplished here tonight. also, you heard governor romney right out of the gate come out here and talk about a woman that he met on the trail in a last couple of days, talking about economic hardship. that was another hurdle that romney tried to cross, connecting with average problems facing americans, not a surprise that he talked about women on the trail and in key states, key battleground states, what they believe that as you mentioned, george, no knockout punch here tonight, but it was a strong performance from the governor when he needed it most. >> all right, david and jake
, governor romney and i both agree our corporate tax rate is too high, i want to lower it, particularly for manufacturing, taking it down to 25%, but i also want to close those loopholes that are giving incentives for companies that are shipping jobs overseas, i want to provide tax breaks for companies that are here in the united states, on energy, governor romney and i, we both agree we have to boost american energy production and oil and natural gas production are higher than they've been in years, but i also believe that we have to look at the energy sources of the future like wind, solar, biofeels, and make those investments, so all of this is possible. now, in order for to us do it, we have to close our deficit, and one of the things we've been discussing tonight, how do we deal with our tax code and make sure we are reducing spending in a responsible way and how do we have enough revenue in those investments? this is a difference, because governor romney's central economic plan calls for a $5 trillion tax cut in addition to $1 trillion extension of the tax cuts, and military tax c
break. when it comes to corporate taxes, gov. romney in a revenue neutral way wants to close loopholes, deductions -- he has not identified which ones they are -- but there by bring down the corporate rate. i want to do the same thing, but i have identified how to do that. part of the way is to not give tax breaks to companies shipping jobs overseas. you can take a deduction for moving a plant overseas. i think most americans would say, that does not make sense. if we take a balanced approach, what that allows us to do is to help young people, the way we have already have, make sure they can afford to go to college. it means the teacher i met in las vegas, a wonderful young lady, she describes how she has 42 kids in her class. some of them are sitting on the floor until finally they get reassigned. they are using textbooks 10 years old. that is not a recipe for growth. that is not how america was built. budgets of fact choices. ultimately we will have to make decisions. if we are asking for no revenue, that means we have to get rid of a whole lot of stuff. the magnitude of the tax cuts
for our young people. when it comes to our tax code, governor romney and i both agree that our corporate tax rate is too high. so i want to lower it. particularly for manufacturing. taking it down to 25%. but i also want to close those loopholes that are giving incentives for companies that are shipping jobs overseas. i want to provide tax breaks for companies that are investing here in the united states. on energy governor romney and i we both agree that we've got to boost american energy production. and oil and natural gas production are higher than they've been in years. but i also believe that we've got to look at the energy source of the future like wind and solar and biofuels and make those investments. so all of this is possible. now, in order for us to do it we have to close our deficit and one of the things i'm sure we'll be discussing tonight is how do we deal with our tax code and how do we make sure that we are reducing spending in a responsible way? but also how do we have enough revenue to make those investments? and there is where there's a difference because governor romn
it comes to corporate taxes, governor romney has said he has won it two in a revenue neutral way close loopholes and deductions. that would bring down the corporate rate. i want to do the same thing. i have action identify how we can do that. part of the way is to not give tax breaks to companies shipping jobs overseas. you can take a deduction for moving a planned overseas. most americans would say, "that does not make -- or make sense. if we take a balanced approach, that allows us to help young people make sure they can afford to go to college. the teacher i met in las vegas, who describes to me she has 42 kids and her class, the first two weeks, she has some of them sitting on the floor until they get reassigned. they're using textbooks that are 10 years old. that is not a recipe for growth. that is not how america was built. but it reflects choices. we will have to make decisions. if we are asking for no revenue, that means we have to get rid of a bunch of stuff in the magnitude of the tax cuts you're talking about would end up and severe hardship for people. it will not help us g
